Surveying Capabilities

Garden State Engineering, Surveying and Planning, Inc.’s Survey Department is equipped with the latest state of the art equipment, which consists of: Leica Total Station Instruments, Digital Levels, 3D Laser Scanners, GPS and Data Collectors. This enables GSESP to provide not only traditional surveying services but we also have the in-house capability to provide GPS surveying and high-definition laser scanning.

All survey data collection, reduction and data processing capability is accomplished with Leica Survey equipment which enables all field data to be transferred digitally and seamlessly to our computer systems.

Our CAD facilities and equipment utilized for survey/mapping functions consist of: Network Work Stations loaded with Civil 3D, AutoCAD, Micro Station and all civil engineering modules with full plotting, scanning and reproducing capabilities.

3D Scanning

3D Laser scanning is a non-invasive method of safely capturing detailed and accurate 3D information on the exposed surfaces of objects. The resulting data from this process is known as a point cloud which will contain hundreds of millions of points.

Some of the common terms are 3D Laser Scanning, reality capture or high-definition surveying. The point cloud data can be used for a variety of purposes including topographic surveys, floor plans, detailed elevation views of building facades as well as simple and complex 3D models for use in Building Information Modeling (BIM).

Laser scanning is used in the construction, architecture, engineering, real estate, archeological and law enforcement industries for a variety of purposes including:


  • Virtual Design and Construction (VDC)
  • Clash Detection
  • Volumes
  • Clearances
  • Design
  • Construction Verification
  • Facility Operations
  • Retrofits
  • Renovations
  • Building Information Modeling (BIM)
  • Topographic Surveys
  • As-builts
  • Existing Conditions
  • Historical and Architectural Documentation and Preservation

Engineering Capabilities

GSESP provides a full range of engineering consulting services—from transportation on bridge and roadway design to railway stations, as well as platform, industrial, and energy and transmission projects.

GSESP also does work on residential and commercial projects, including site plan design, building and foundation design, and new and retrofit design of existing structures.

Garden State’s Engineering Department has participated in transportation projects (highways, roadways, railways, etc.), structural projects (bridges, buildings, coal plants, sewer treatment plants, energy and transmission plants, co-generation plants, refrigeration plant, underground structures, etc.), civil projects (demolition, grading, paving, drainage, MPT, landfill management, parking lots, etc.) providing Consultative Services.

Garden State’s Engineers have provided civil engineering services, including recommendations pertaining to demolition, grading, paving, drainage, MPT, and landfill management. We have provided civil and structural engineering design for bridges, highways, railroads, coal plants, sewer treatment plants, energy and transmission plants, co-generation plants, refrigeration plants, and underground structures. Our work has included recommendations of all phases of project inception through construction phase services.

In addition our structural engineering expertise is fairly unique and addresses certain aspects of construction engineering providing consulting insights and recommendations of means, methods and controls in site management. This includes but not limited to suggestions for structural work for demolition, which includes checking existing structure for loads imposed by construction equipment, thereby supporting the construction means and methods.

This is significant since many large scale engineering designs of buildings, roadways and other structures may expressly exclude means and methods suggestions from the scope, because they are not directly working or supporting contractors with these consulting services.
